Agency Court Filings

After the Board issues a decision and final order in a contested unfair labor practice case, any person aggrieved may seek review of the final order, and the Board may seek enforcement of its order, in an appropriate United States Court of Appeals. The General Counsel represents the Board in the Court of Appeals.

Before a Board decision issues in an unfair labor practice case, there may be litigation involving temporary injunctions under Section 10(j) or 10(l) of the Act. These injunctions prevent irreparable harm to statutory rights pending the issuance of the Board’s decision and final order. Regional Offices litigate injunction proceedings in the United States District Courts. The General Counsel, through the Injunction Litigation Branch, represents the Board in appeals involving Section 10(j) and 10(l) brought before a United States Court of Appeals.
